"Not One Damn Dime Day" - Jan 20, 2005 - Inauguration Day
Since our religious leaders will not speak out against the war in Iraq, since our political leaders don't have the moral courage to oppose it, Inauguration Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not One Damn Dime Day" in America.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day" those who oppose what is happening in our name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all forms of consumer spending. During "Not One Damn Dime Day" please don't spend money. Not one damn dime for gasoline. Not one damn dime for necessities or for impulse purchases. Not one damn dime for anything for 24 hours.
On "Not One Damn Dime Day," please boycott Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target . . .
Please don't go to the mall or the local convenience store. Please don't buy any fast food (or any groceries at all for that matter).
For 24 hours, please do what you can to shut the retail economy down. The object is simple. Remind the people in power that the war in Iraq is immoral and illegal; that they are responsible for starting it and that it is their responsibility to stop it.
"Not One Damn Dime Day" is to remind them, too, that they work for the people of the United States of America, not for the international corporations and K Street lobbyists who represent the corporations and funnel cash into American politics.
"Not One Damn Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The politicians put the troops in harm's way.
Now that over 1,300 brave young Americans and (some estimate) 100,000 Iraqis have died, the politicians owe our troops a plan - a way to come home.
There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left or right wing agenda to rant about. On "Not One Damn Dime Day" you take action by doing nothing.
You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed.
For 24 hours, nothing gets spent, not one damn dime, to remind our religious leaders and our politicians of their moral responsibility to end the war in Iraq and give America back to the people.
Please share this e-mail with as many people as possible.
You look familiar.
Are you related to Dirk Diggler by any chance?
You fools already don't have the money to spend at these stores. You're broke after having to paying for your drugs.
you know, there are certain representatives in Congress from North Carolina that would agree with this crap.....
Maybe this guy should invest in some valium and a good shrink (I know, that's an oxymoron).
Better pick up your meds the day before.
The Bush Doctrine comforts me and mine. It scares the bejeezeers out of him.
I wish you brainless turds would worry as much about the unborn as you do our enemies
Mike out of Iraq?
Im boycotting Iraqi imports to protest the continuation of American lives and dollars being wasted in Iraq. War was right (though not fought properly) but the rebuilding is wrong.
If you change it how will I know I am talking to you?
BTW glad your home safe.
First, you have to have money to spend!
All your Nukes ARE Belong to Us!!!!
Sharing an e-mail from a friend that promises a chuckle:
I am on the e-mail list of at least one local liberal. As a result, I received a correspondence about the liberals' latest scheme to thwart Hitler, I mean Bush.
It's called Don't Spend a Dime Day.
On January 20, liberals are being instructed not to buy anything. Not even a gum ball.
That way, they will demonstrate the power of their solidarity and the power of their purse strings while putting the screws to Dubya, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice and Dick Cheney.
In the spirit of friendly competition, here are some suggestions I have for things you might want to do to counteract the effects of Don't Spend A Dime Day (again, the date is January 20)...
Treat that special someone to a meal at Ruth's Chris Steak House.
Purchase a Toby Keith CD. Preferably, the one with the song the Peter Jennings thought was insufficiently sensitive to the concerns of the terrorist community.
Then there's that timeless old chestnut: Halliburton stock (that is, if Dick Cheney hasn't gobbled it all up by now).
Rent the DVD, "Team America: World Police." (But make sure the kiddies aren't watching.)
Hey, you might even want to write a check to people at the National Republican Senate Committee, even if it means you'll almost certainly receive an 8x10 glossy photo of Trent Lott on a regular basis for the rest of your natural life. (I know he's not majority leader any more. But I figure they've got a lot of those pictures, just lying around.)
In all seriousness, I think I'll pay my dues to my County Republican Party on that day.
By the way, Don't Spend A Dime Day narrowly edged out Hold Your Breath Until You Turn Blue Day as the liberals' rallying cry for 2005.
The war is not over. Unfortunately, it will not be over for generations. It is in our National interest to get that place in order.
Is this the same guy who keeps calling Janet Reno and asking for a date?
